About

Survive in a cruel medieval environment filled with players and wild animals. Build a small dwelling or huge fortress, and if you feel powerful enough challenge one of the kings!

Character Creation

Within Kingdoms, upon joining a server, you will be able to create your character as you see fit. With many options to choose from, you can make yourself look unique!

Servers

Each server is aimed to have a capacity of 100 players. Most servers will have a ping-limit to minimise lag and increase the player experience.

Crafting Stations

There will be different crafting stations within Kingdoms. These include: smelters, forges, workbenches, anvils and more! Each of these have a specific use within the world, and to become more technologically advanced the player must construct these stations. At the beginning when joining a server you will have to harvest resources to build up your power on the server!


Building System

The building system will be a block building system. This allows the player maximum flexibility over their bases. They can choose whether to create a small dwelling or a huge fortress. The choice is yours.

Siege System

This siege system allows a fully immersive experience. With weapons such as the trebuchet and ballista you can show your enemies who is more powerful.

King System

This king system allows players to rule over the server. There will be multiple throne-rooms placed throughout the world, and each king will be able to rule over a certain area on the map. Each king can place a tax on that specific area, and players can choose which king to support. Each king can raise the tax to a maximum of 30% of player collected resources. Will you be a good king or a bad king? Will people support you, or leave to join the other kings realm?

Combat System

The combat system will be a major feature in Kingdoms, and will be similar to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. The player will be able to perform different moves against their opponent, and the player with more skill will win.

Guild System

The guild system will allow players to join forces with each other. This will primarily allow players to build bases together, and go to war against other guilds. If your guild decides to fight against one of the two kings to claim the throne, you can definitely choose to do so!

Why Kickstarter?

When we started creating Kingdoms: The Crown, we firstly thought we could create the game without financing from other people. However, while we have made some very good progress, we now believe Kickstarter will help us develop the game further than possible before as we will have more resources available. In addition, we believe involving the community during the development process is vital. It will provide us with insight of what you as the player wants in a game like this. We also see transparency as the best way to inform you of what we are doing. Below you can find our plans for the budget and more!

If we exceed our minimum funding, we will expand the siege system!

Risks and challenges

Due to the number of features we want to add before Steam Early Access release, we will do our best to reduce any delays incurred. This is why the Kickstarter is so important, to help us reach all the features we want to add!

Another challenge will be servers. As we want each server to have a capacity of 100 players, we will do our best to ensure lag is reduced so you can enjoy the game! Server performance will continually be improved overtime if any issues arise.
